Abu Dhabi: The great achievements made by Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan will remain a historical landmark to keep his memory alive.

In his statement, marking the UAE's 33rd National Day, Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, said achievements made by Sheikh Zayed will be consolidated by adopting the same course, indicating that Sheikh Zayed's leadership was full of wisdom and experience.

He said Sheikh Zayed was the maker of the country's history, the defeater of difficulties, who brought an affluent lifestyle to the country. He and his brothers, Rulers of the emirates, guided the country towards civilisation and advancement.

Following is the full text of Sheikh Sultan's statement:

UAE nationals, today we mark the 33rd National Day with heavy hearts, and crying in anguish over the great loss of the father, the leader and the founder, Sheikh Zayed The nation's heart can only be comforted by his glorious deeds and achievements, which will remain a landmark in the history of the nation. The last three decades of the Federation represented only a small portion of the UAE's historic march towards civilisation.

What was achieved during that period made the experimenter a pioneer. The achievements were the results of the policies of rare genius in the modern world. The late Sheikh Zayed introduced a different perspective to leadership qualities. He charted an integrated doctrine of self-dependency, far-sightedness and ability to read the future and control its trends.

These are the exceptional characteristics of a leader who will forever remain an example to follow for his strong will to achieve the best for his country and his people. Sheikh Zayed's genius has placed the UAE in high international regard. The UAE people, whenever they recall the federation's anniversary, will stand in glorification for this great God endowed genius, who said the federation was the ideal path for a better future and a civilised country.

They are also fully confident that the country, in the honest hands of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, will resume the march and adopt his predecessor's doctrine. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
